Acknowledgement of Country

February 26, 2018

On behalf of all of us at Sydney Harbour Kayaks, we would like to acknowledge the original paddlers of the area, the Gamaragal clan of the Eora Nation and the Barapa Barapa and Yorta Yorta Nations, whose country we are surrounded by, and whose waterways we paddle on.


As we share our experiences on the water, we also pay respect to the knowledge passed down through Aboriginal culture - knowledge about how to live in harmony with the land.
